RL Osborn and Mike Buff

rl mikebuffRL Osborn and Mike Buff were a well know trick team at the time. Both guys stayed at my house for some time, together with Scot Breithaupt. This was during the period that the USA rider Kyle Flemming was killed in a car-train accident and that The Duke (Duke Dana) of Oakley was in a coma due to the same accident. I remember RL Osborn talking over the phone to The Duke while he was in a coma. Doctors said he might hear his words and this could help him fight for his life. And he did. A few years later we could see him coming down hanging on a wire at the Bercy Indoor (1988).  RL and Mike performed many times in Holland and Belgium, during the stay at my house.
